We could continue to maintain ahe camps and cantonments indefinitely, caring first for this generation and then for the next, which is rapidly arriving. . 4. We could endeavor to secure their resettlement i in countries where they could sink new roots— the first roots they would have had in many a year. Sage can only see the fourth alternative. The others, he believes, are either impossible, like No. 3, or completely inhumane like one and two. Usually when men and women have been exposed to the prob' lem of the DPs at close hand for any length of time they cease to hink in terms of humanity, but h terms of annoying problems ike infant mortality and clogged atrines. But Sape continues to think in erms of humanity. He sees in the emaining DP problem something of a test of national and interna^- .ional morality. He thinks that the vestern nations should stop depending on affidavits from abroad, oh private charity, in attempting ;o solve the problem. He thinks that we should face the situation simply under- partment store tea-rooms ..... the library, union "station and many othe* public spots.

BLAKESLEE AP Science Editor Urbana-Champaign, 111. — A new, snapshooting gun for cancer is described by Dr. Lester S. Skaggs, of the Michael Reese Hospital, Chicago, now working at the University of Illinois.on developments of betatrons. . This gun, Dr. Skaggs says, will be a betatron of 35.000,000 clec- •ron-volts and it is expected to be :hc most powerful weapon yet made for fighting cancer. Betatrons arc electrical energy machines which whirl the minutest known particles of matter, electrons until they are traveling close to the vcochty of light, i'hich is 180,000 miles a second. At those speeds the electrons can be drawn from the betatron in the form of a beam. It is such a beam that Dr. Skaggs wants.for cancer. This beam, at 35,000,000 electron-volts, he says, will exceed anything ever before used for cancer. This beam, while having full ei- fect on destroying the cancer aimed at, will have no effect beyond that point. This is unlike X-rays, and radium rays, which keep on going past the cancer, damaging the tissues beyond. Industry has betatrons of the iergy wanted for cancer, hut Dr. taggs says no hospital or re- earch center has one. He esti- iPtes that it will cost $250.000 to juild a cancer betatron and says lis money has not been raised. Dr. Skaggs is" w o r k i n g with Professor Donald W. Kersl, ot the Jniversity of Illinois, inventor of ho betatron in 1940. The univer- ity is planning one of these mstru. mehts to deliver around 200,000,100 electron-volt beams for re- earch. Christmas Candy Is Occupation for Ex-Soldters AP Newsfeatures New Orleans— Two veterans, who decided that one overhead was better than two. have pooled their resources and now are making Christmas stick candy canes, pralines, fruit cake and other southern confections. The two captains of the candy kitchen are Carl Smith, Jr., and Bryon Bell, Jr.. who decided to go nlo business together to take advantage of special allotments of sugar the government made available to veterans. Now they are using in IS days what comprised a whole year's allotment under rationing. They opened their business in Nov., 1946, and called it "Tasso Plantation." Today they employ 24 perbons, mostly ex-Gls who have learned to be experts at baknjg the fruit cakes and shaping caramel pecan pralines. The ex-GI's are employed with the help of the government s on-th.e-job training program. The partners estimate they turn out a ton of candy a day and at least 1,200 pounds of fruit cake.

Jeff walking out on Liz and me that day at the studio after his fuss wM.h Avis and threatening darkly: "I'm tired of her pushing me around, and 1m going to do something about it- And the way his face had looked when he said it. "Oh Jeff." I said again weakly. And wondered sickly what he expected me to do. He had just made an indirect declaration of his love. Was I supposed to accept it? And keep'silent? Shield him V>v nv silence? Was he so ».ure of my love tor him, that he -thougnt i would do this? Was I so sure of my love for him that I would? The attraction between us had been an intangible thing. An uncrystallized i emotio. It might have become • love. . . .in time. Now I didn t . know what I felt. i My thoughts were mad, whirling ; dervishes. I couldn't sort them :out, or my feelings, or my impul- >s I could only gasp weakly in autopsies performed and found poison That's why Leiphan has been asking so many questions about what we had to drink. And who mixed the drinks. The. idea is that it was given to thsm here in your house. . . " I rubbed my hind over my forehead "I can't believe it, Jell, whv. we all ate and drank everything—all of us." ' ; "I'm sorry I upset you, Jeti said. "I — Ithought you ought to know." When he next spoke it was with determined cheerfulness. 'T-he uohcu acn'i seem to be making much progress. . . mayb thy'll drop the whole thing and let it go as an accident. Let's you and I try to forget it, anyway. I want you down at the studio in the morning." .., , "You mean you're going ahead with the picture, now that all this has happened?" "Going ahead with it. . . Jell was stopped for a moment by his clutching at a straw: "The police do they know—I mean how they were killed?..:That ..detective wouldn't tell me anything. Jeff looked at me oddly. I thought you knew. Avis and Art were poisoned." i It took time for that to register. i I stared back at Jeff afterward I knew how closely he must have been watching me in that moment 1 —and said thickly. "Poisoned— poisoned? But how could they be poisoned?" "That's what the police are trying to find out," Jeff said slowly. He began to talk, giving -me fr,ne to gather my scattered wits about me. "The pupils of their eyes were one thing that tiped the police off. Dilated or something like that. U seems the cys of people who die like that. And socn iie'Itenaccesid iin automobile accidents aren't like that. And so the police had UTAH VISITOR •• i,m<-r iLScalante, a noted Spanish missionary, was the second white man to visit the territory ot utcin no made his visit in July, 177G, the same month and year as , the signing of the Declaration of I Independence. i m me obvious to a moron. 'Of course, we're going ahe.ad with it, Holly. Don't you know that all this has given us a million dollars worth of free publicity? It will be the most talked about picture of the year." Liz Leydon had said the same thing. It seemed that I was always underrating that man's cleverness. "We'll have to get a couple of new leads," Jeff went on. "We may even have to dicker with another studio for an actress to play , the part Avis had. All of our stars are tied up in other productions right now." I had a brainstorm. "Jeff— why don't you give the lead to Madge Narney? I watched her the otn- >er day playing the part of the secretary. That girl really puts her heart into her work. I believe she has talent. You said yourself when you first mentioned her to me that she was one of your most promising starlets." Jeff stared at me thoughtiully weighing what 1 had said. I coulc see him wanning to the idea. At Mast, he admitted slowly: "Maybe 'you've got something there, Hoi And so another infinitesimal piece in the pattern of our murder mystery —and its eventual solution —was laid in place. Jeff left. I put away the food and cleared the table and did the dishes all the time going over in my mind what we had talked about. I began to .realize what it meant —Avis and Art being poisoned, I mean. For one thing it seemed to exclude the possibility of any outsider doing the murder— Jimmy Peters, for instance. Narrowed the suspects down to the people who had been in my house that night . the three survivors. It was funny the feeling I had when I arrived at that fact, as if there suddenly wasn't enough air in the room. Only Jeff Haverson, Liz Lcyden and myself could be suspects in the eyes of the police if Avis Vaughn and Art Cloves were poisoned in my house. It was then I remembered the poison I had. The little packet of poison I'd brought with me to Hollywood and that I kept hidden in the dressing table in my bathroom. That gave me a really bad moment. What if Bob Leiphan had found that, I thought. The day he and his men went over my house. I was sweating and not from the California weather as I dashed up the stairs, intent on getting rid of the incriminating item then and there. I opened the little drawer in . the dressing table and reached ack to where the envelope should ave been. It wasn't there!
